a blue cat

When I was a child one of my grandmothers lived with us. I often listened to her stories, but only believed about half of them.

My Grandmother told me a story of a blue cat. A blue cat? There is no such thing.

Then I fostered and later adopt Buddha. Buddha was a very sick kitten and I brought her back from the brink of death twice.

Rusty said that he loved her coat and that it had a blue hint to it. What a blue cat? There is no such thing.

Rusty was right. Her coat does have a blue tint to it. So this morning I looked up blue cats and sure enough there is a breed called Russian Blue! Yep there was our cats picture on the front page. I have a blue cat.

Today I am just kinda taking things as they come. I might have to go to San Diego to pick up Beth, but if the marines get off early then one of them will pick her up. I can't wait to see Beth!

I am also waiting on a phone call. Someone off free cycle listed a bunch of stuff, so I took all of it. I am waiting for her to call me, so I can go pick it up.

One of the items she offered was a simple wedding dress. She said the dress has a water stain on it. Whatever.

So Nikki is bugging me. She wants to see this dress. Nikki is going to ask our friend Lyn to help her tailor it down and take the train off of it. Nikki wants to turn it into a formal, and if we can't get the stain out then Nikki will just embellish the dress.

I am so glad that Nikki is cheap like me. I think this will be fun. Last year nikki made her own Easter dress and it turned out so good.

I finished a quilt top yesterday and I was going to give it to one of the guys. Then the girls said that it looks to girly for a guy! Oh crap. I am trying to use the material that I have. Money is tight until Rusty gets paid next Friday! I could give the quilt to another girl, but I something very special in mind for Larry. Oh well, I guess I will just put the quilt top up or I will quilt it and sell it.

I have really gotten into the game book worm. I love playing this game and I must say that I am learning a lot of new words. When I cant find a word I just start clicking on tiles until something comes up. I will tell you that turd is not in their dictionary, but bong is. Hemp and weed are also in there...... just for the record.

Rusty comes home today! I can't wait to see him. Rusty said that he has not been sleep well. He has no cat's or dog's sleeping with him and he forgot to take his blanket! Oh poor baby.

While Rusty was out in 29 palm I had him pick up two Christmas gifts for Ryan. I know I am starting early. I saw them at the exchange and I know that if I wait to get them, that they will be long gone by Christmas. Oh well, they can collect dust in the closet.

I guess I need to go dig through my material and see if I can find some manly material.

Oh and to everyone that cursed me for it being warm here, well your curse has worked. It is a balmy 54 degrees with high winds. I guess there will be no nude sun tanning today. Do goose bumps tan?

Beautiful's a little too cold to be sunbathing in the nude, but I would say the goosebumps would tan ;)

Weed....nothing wrong with that.

I would gladly go out in 54 windy conditions than deal with any more freaking snow....It's snowing again and we're suppose to get another 4-8 inches. Learn something new every day. A blue cat? who would of thought. Yours is rather beautiful! (Hugs) Indigo

What a gorgeous cat photo.  He looks like royalty.  Yes, there must be blue cats and we had a horse named "Old Blue" so there are blue horses  But if this is the cat I am very impressed.  Gerry

Is that the blue cat? I've seen black crows that look blue, I always thought they were so pretty. Your cat is a beauty no matter what color!
Sorry I'm not around much these days. I'll still be trying to make my rounds on the weekends but life has been so busy. I'm having my own little blogathon between all my journals over this long weekend while catching up.
Hope you have a good one! Martha :-)

That is a beautiful kitty... :)
Have you got the kettle on?, hehehe
You sure are a very busy woman. I haven't been to San diego in a few years. We were stationed at 32nd street for about 4 years or so, lol. Used to take my boys to the Wild Animal Park and Seaworld all the time. I used to love going down to a little scottish tearoom right off the 8 west, A Bit Of Britian, if I recall the name right. The lady that owned it was from the same little town I was born and raised in and she used to give me her old newspapers, ones that had been sent to her from out little town. We went back about two years ago and took the boys to Seaworld again and went down to mission beach, but unfortunatly, when I went by this little tearoom, it was no longer there. it was a very sad day. We lived in the Chesterton military housing in Linda Vista, right off the 163. Back then, this was brand new housing..and very beautiful inside and out. Not sure how it looks nowadays. I actually wokred in a clothing plus size store right up from our house. Worked there for about a year before an illness forced me to stay home. I enjoyed San Diego, My hubby was on the USS Pelelui when we were stationed there. That's a big ship lol...and was gone alot over the 4 or so years.
LOL...sry for rambling...memories.
SkinnyMclinky....or just Lisa..hehe

I love freecycle and am trying to pick up somthing today if they will just answer me.  That is one beautiful cat.  Our cream colored cat I was told has Siamese in him.  I did some research and he is a cream colored tortie point short hair.  And the black one has tortie in him too.  Both very pretty.  I haven't quilted in years. I can't wait to see more pictures.
